Bowl Cat Returns!

September 7, 2011

Bowl Cat

Not all cats have superpowers.

Similarly, not all cats live the life of the decorative vessel.

It was a cold, rainy night when I was first introduced to the cat in the bowl.

We bonded over her love of lying in bowls and my love of photographing such things.

Then one wild day on the Internet, I gave her a mustache.

And while we never discussed it, I think she knew.

For she stopped lying in bowls.

 Then, finally, the other night she sauntered into the living room and jumped on the table and snuggled in for a bowl nap.

Apparently, she’s finally ready for her close-up.

I should invent a line of human bowl chairs

How could that not be huge?

I think I would LOVE to curl up in a bowl-chair!

Oh, Bowl Cat, how I’ve missed you! Welcome back to the blog! :)

Bowl cat has missed you too.

Bowl Cat is my very favorite. I feel like we’d be good friends although we may disagree on the mustache look.

Also? I’d almost certainly enjoy a bowl nap so get on with your big plans of bowl chairs.

Ooh – bowl nap. I’m definitely going to include that phrase in the marketing literature.

Ha! My harley does the same thing. I have a very expensive bowl in my showroom….wouldnt you know, that one is his favorite!

I would totally buy a bowl chair for my dog. He doesn’t really have a clever moniker per se, but he does think he’s a cat often. He’s a little awkward and confused. Sounds like the perfect target demographic for your new product!

Awkward and confused? He’s my ideal demographic!

My cat is too large to fit in any bowl. She’s more comfortable on a nice, wide floor!

Cat soup? No, that would be gross…

I have a bowl cat too…

PS. Isn’t a papasan chair a “bowl chair”?

Megan September 7, 2011

Drat! Well, there goes my bowl chair empire…

I’d certainly be interested in a line of giant bowl chairs.

Last night, my cat up & demanded time in my lap. She never, ever demands “human time” at all. So I went to check her food and her litter . . . they were fine. She, apparently, just wanted the attention.

She’s weird.

Now I’m feeling sorry for my bowl-less cats. They have to make do with fuzzy blankets. It’s not at all the same.

Where do I place my order for the human bowl chair?
I’ll take four please.

Bowl chairs are every where. http://espasso.com/mailmkt/sft/bowl/

Had one at a previous apartment. Before the roommate broke it, it was arguably a decent chair to sit in.

We have one like this at home and it’s seriously the most awesome thing EVER! I might be part Bowl Cat. :O

Bowl Cat looks rather precariously perched near the edge of that table.
I would think Bowl Cat would get a bit concerned about that cantilever.
But then, I know very little about these things. I spend most of my time in flower pots.

D-Oh!
Clearly I don’t spend enough time filling out forms, either.

I have to say that is one very adorable cat. I miss my cats…

Your chair would be different from all previously existing bowl-shaped chairs because yours would be made of glass, the ultimate in comfort. I would totally buy one, possibly just to force guests to sit in it and pose for photos.

Amanda Austin September 7, 2011

Ahh, I love cats! I have an unnatural obsession with them. Crazy cat lady-like. So this post is pretty much the best.

Reply

Amanda Austin September 7, 2011

And also, I’d like a bowl chair, please.

Mama Spaghetti September 7, 2011

Aw! Glad to see she’s back into the bowl.

And I would totally buy a bowl chair for humans. That sounds awesome.

I think my Box Cat (yeah, I know, not terribly original) could be good friends with Bowl Cat.

Love it!

It shall not stop at a chair, I demand a bowl bed. And a bowl tub.

Reply

Pamela September 7, 2011

I love this cat! However, I’m thinking you might have more success with a line of bowl beds for pets. With your cat as the spokesmodel.

Stephanie @ Our Marriage Adventure September 7, 2011

LOL I’m glad I’m not the only one who thought of Papasan chairs. Which are awesomely comfortable. Especially when you have a fake mustache on.

This post made me immediately think of my Aunt’s cat 2 bowls. Not because he slept in bowls, but because he was a stray and for the first couple of weeks he would eat 2 bowls full of food when they fed him. The name just stuck.

I love it when animals decide on unusual sleeping spaces. When I was a teenager with a stuffed toy covered bed, my dog would sneak up there. She wasn’t allowed on the bed, but she would curl up pretending to be a toy.

Bowl Cat Returns is so much better than The Godfather III.
Even without the mustache.

Me-OW!

Kimberly September 7, 2011

Ha ha ha ha ha! She was a little irked that you put a mustache on her? I don’t blame her. It seems as if she’s forgiven you for the time being.

Sandra September 7, 2011

Actually, I think human-bowl chairs are very 1974. Very large bowls is the way to go…filled with ice cream!!!! Right right, I’m on to something right! People could roll around in the bowl…let me know, I’ll have my people contact your people.
PS: This was seriously the most hysterical post I’ve read all day!

Bowl Cat sounds a lot like LOLcat. You’re sitting on an empire. Or that cat is sitting on an empire. Someone is sitting on an empire.

Reply

Megan September 8, 2011

I feel like there’s a “sitting on my cat” joke here, I just can’t find it.

Reply

Kimberly September 8, 2011

I’d buy one…only if it came with a fake mustache.
